Sagittaria aginashi / Aginashi アギナシ

Sagittaria aginashi is a perennial herb occurring in marshes. It forms many small corms in the leaf axils to make vegetative reproductions, not runners. With pedicles and leaves radicating from roots directly, those blade portions are arrowhead-shaped, i.e., elongated and triangular, and have the two basal lobes prolonged downwards. Dorsal lobes are longer than the other lateral ones. Leaf tips are not sharp, regardless of lateral or dorsal ones. Long flower stems, 30-80cm in height, set whorled racemes in which white 3-petaled flowers, 1.5-2cm in diameter, bloom. Bloom time: June-October.
